Green Building Standards SBM 2015

Green buildings often have unhealthy interiors designed to minimise energy consumption and not the well being of the biological  occupants  – whether human, animal or plant. The Building Biology movement has been working to change that with over 6000 people, architects, doctors, surveyors, material suppliers, etc. trained to create interiors which promote life within the built environment.

Germany’s Building Biologists have issued an important update to the SBM 2008 standards – now called SBM 2015.

These are the Green Building Standards SBM 2015. The English version of the standard has not been published yet, we will update you with analysis of the chnages and also the English version by email if you subscribe to our website (also a free ebook on how to reduce electromagnetic pollution).

This standard defines recommendations for how to measure how green the interior of your building is for human, animal and plant biology – so how healthy your house is to live in rather than the narrow usual definition of green building standards which look at how much energy the building consumes.

 

Airtube Headsets: 100 doctors recommend them

From the Boston Herald

Doctors and researchers from Boston to Sydney are sounding the alarm on the potential risks of using wireless devices during pregnancy, calling for a closer look at technology they say could have serious long-term consequences for 
unborn babies.

The group of doctors suggests pregnant women avoid carrying their cellphones on or near their bodies, and use their smartphones on a speaker setting or with an airtube headset.

Airtube headsets are safer because the phone is further from the users body.

More than one hundred physicians, scientists and public health professionals from around the world
have joined together to express their concern about the risk that wireless radiation poses to pregnancy
and to urge pregnant women to limit their exposures.
